This weeklong celebration serves to recognize case managers, to educate the public and to increase recognition of case management contributions. Find out how you can celebrate.
Case Management is a collaborative process of assessment, planning, facilitation and advocacy for options and services to meet an individual's health needs through communication and available resources to promote quality cost-effective outcomes.
The last concern most individuals have when they or their loved ones are dealing with a health situation is ensuring effective communication between their doctors, nurses, social workers and other health care providers. However, it is poor communication between well-intentioned professionals and an expectation that patients themselves will remember and relate critical information that can lead to dangerous and even life-threatening situations.
The National Transition of Care Coalition (NTOCC) believes that patients are at the center of care and can play an active role in improving communications and use tools to ensure effective transitions. We have brought together industry leaders who have created resources to help you better understand transitional challenges and empower you as part of the care giving team.
